The Ombuds Program is a confidential, neutral, informal (off-the-record) and independent resource that operates separately from company traditional channels, protects the identity of its users, does not maintain detailed records and does not accept legal notice on behalf of the company with respect to any claim or matter. We do not conduct investigations. We work with employees to help them generate options on how to resolve any work related concern. The Ombuds Program is not a formal reporting channel.
Warning: Do not include any technical/export-controlled/classified data that may be regulated by any country's export controls regulations with your submission.
This website is one way to contact RTX’s Ombuds Program. This tool is for the use of RTX employees and other stakeholders. Any unauthorized use is prohibited.
You may use this system to begin a discussion of any work-related concern. You may also call the Ombuds Office toll-free at 800-871-9065 to speak with us. If you are calling from outside the USA, Canada or Puerto Rico, please remember to dial the AT&T Direct Access number to the USA first, which may be found at http://www.business.att.com/bt/access.jsp.
